Have you seen the ad on TV for some kind of car insurance? The actor is holding a document with a confused expression on her face as she reads, “Blah! Blah! Blah!”
That’s about it when it comes to most insurance and investment instructions and explanations about coverage, each one pointing in a different direction.
In another ad, two people are proud to tell you that their company will not raise rates for the first auto accident (the implication being that others will). No mention of what will occur if you have a second or third. Ooops! Forgot to include that info.
And how about the company that is ‘on your side’ or the one in whose ‘good hands’ you are totally safe?
Blah! Blah! Blah! I have to laugh whenever these ads pop up. Do the owners even believe their own press? I doubt it. But on it goes, year after year, advertisers digging into our pockets while they promise loyalty and protection. I guess they have to make a buck as we all do. But as for me, I’ll buy what I need to get through life on planet earth, but I have no expectations from any of them.
My faith and trust rests in the Lord because he is the only one who is truly on our side, in whose hands we are safe, and who will forgive not only our first ‘accident’ but seventy times seven if it comes to that.
Praise God from whom all blessings and love and forgiveness comes forever and ever.
“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
This is ‘sound off’ week so if you have a gripe or complaint, let’s hear it. Sometimes if just plain feels good to blow the whistle on the hype that permeates our daily life. Thank heaven for times of solitude and rest in the Lord.
